This beautiful barn conversion is an ideal rural retreat for guests seeking a place to relax and unwind, surrounded by stunning woodland, lush pastures and miles of rolling hills.

Set within the western reaches of the North Yorkshire Moors, this impressive property is located on the edge of the pretty village of Hovingham, which features several pubs, a shop and a tearoom. Don your walking boots and navigate the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, or perhaps venture by car to explore exciting places such as Castle Howard 5 miles away, or the Yorkshire Arboretum 6 miles away.

This luxurious holiday home is spacious and light-filled, framed by high ceilings and finished with stylish decor. Overall it is a contemporary haven, but rustic details such as wooden beams and exposed brickwork hint of the property's rustic former life. The cosy kitchen also offers a traditional feel, featuring everything you need to prepare hearty farmhouse-style meals. The formal dining room offers a social space with large wooden table taking centre stage; it's the perfect place to enjoy time gathered together. Retire to the lounge with a nightcap in hand, embracing the warmth of the open fire. Upstairs, each bedroom is presented beautifully, with glamorous fixtures, and sumptuous beds; each bedroom has an en-suite. Two of the bedrooms feature a mezzanine level, offering guests excellent hideaway for some well-deserved quiet time.

Step outside to discover a private enclosed garden that's ideal for leisurely drinks and hot tub for your exclusive use. Indulge in a dip before dining al fresco under the stars. A visit to the shared spa facilities on site is definitely in order for further pampering, indulging in a treatment and sauna session. If healthy competition is more your cup of tea, challenge the troops to an evening in the games room instead.

The cottage was amazing we were a party of nine and had plenty of room The cottage is so large. It is stunning inside from the bedrooms to the lounge to the dinning room, the kitchen is to die for. We took a lot of things with us only to find they were already there on our arrival. The hot tub was amazing, the games room the kids loved, the gym andRead more sauna all used. Hide
